Damaris is the youngest daughter of the plastic artist and ceramic muralist Rodolfo Disner Clavería. Damaris was born in Mexico City in 1975. She started writing around the age of 14. She is originally from Tonalá, Chiapas, a coastal place where she studied primary and secondary school at the “La Rosa” religious school, and high school at the Tonalá High School. She currently lives and works in the capital of Chiapas: Tuxtla Gutiérrez[1]

Damaris Disner has an infectious smile, a creative mind, and an enthusiastic and dynamic spirit. She assumes herself as curious by vocation and is also a lover of the feline spirit. She works with children’s literature, theatre, mini fictions, cultural press, and seeks to break through monotony and disenchantment with her words. She affirms that in the works for children, she seeks to unravel the fears of childhood, to confront them from the perspective of the adult she learns to be. [2]


She has a degree in Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Chiapas, UNACH. She was a member of the literary creation workshop of the Yolanda Gómez Fuentes Children’s Coexistence and Family Recreation Center and the Poetics and Narrative Seminar of the General Society of Writers of Mexico, SOGEM, in 2004 she studied dramaturgy with Enrique Polo Keratry.[3]


Since March 2, 2013, she created and has directed the Rodolfo Disner Gallery, whose name is in honor of her father, a renowned artist from Chiapas. This gallery is currently celebrating nine years of activity (2013-2022). It is located in the city of Tuxtla Gutiérrez, the capital of Chiapas. In this space, they establish a link between local children and the world of creation, with activities related to culture, art, literature, music, dance, and theater.[4]
